Our family recently attended Project X’s presentation of James and the Giant Peach.
From the beginning to the end, our entire family was captivated by this endearing tale. The enthusiasm of the actors was infectious and we found ourselves laughing often throughout the play. We felt the language and subject matter were age-appropriate for all of our children (4-6-8). Props were well designed and added a great dimension to the play. The costumes were also very creative and we were able to easily identify who each character was. This play was nothing short of AMAZING!!
Overall I would recommend this play to any family!
Well done Project X!
James and the Giant Peach is showing alternating nights at Prince Charles Park. The other play showing this summer is Romeo and Juliet.

Since this past weekend was Earth Day I decided to ask all the Strong Start families to bring in some clean reusable garbage and recycling.
Some of the junk we collected were milk jugs, boxes, yogourt containers, tin foil, puzzles, marker lids, string, toilet paper rolls, plastic bags and egg cartons.
I visited the dollar store to gather a collection of colourful tape!
It was fun to watch the children use their creative magic and turn garbage into beautiful junk.
The children started to create wonderful robots, dinosaurs and creatures.
We glued, cut, taped, and painted our beautiful junk.
They loved doing this project so much I’m still collecting junk to bring in.
It’s easy to just start saving recycled materials and let your children tape up a masterpiece.
